    Sorry about the blurry pics but she/he did not want to be photographed. This one is about 10 weeks and we are worried it my be a rooster by the behavior. I know you can tell by saddle feathers but these look like they might be pointy side However they're not that much thinner the others. Any help would be appreciated.

    G’Day from down under partybriz [​IMG] Welcome!

    I agree with Ken that the Breed & Gender Forum is your best bet for experienced opinions.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I'm not seeing any pointy hackle or saddle feathers and no hint of red/enlarging comb. Looks like a pullet to me (at this age).

    Thanks everyone. I'm hoping it's a pullet. We really don't need a rooster.
